The King and Four Queens is a comedic adventure directed by Raoul Walsh that centers on a con man as he takes on his next job that entails him romancing four beautiful widows of outlaws in order to get the location of their late husbands' gold. Dan Kehoe (Clark Gable) is a middle-aged con man known best for his charm and his gun handling. When he discovers that four outlaw brothers have died and left their stolen loot hidden somewhere with the knowledge only known to their mother, Ma McDade (Jo Van Fleet), and their widows. Dan wastes no time in heading to Wagon Mound in order to ingratiate himself in their lives, which is a relatively easy thing to do since the four women, Sabina (Eleanor Parker), Ruby (Jean Willes), Birdie (Barbara Nichols), and Oralie (Sara Shane), are in dire need of companionship thanks to the strong arm of the cantankerous Ma. Ma, it seems, is holding out for her one surviving son to return for his bride and the loot. The King and Four Queens is a different style of Western with a focus on the romance and comedy rather than the gun slinging.moreless
